Christmas Tree Elegance

Christmas Tree Elegance is roaring back! Our premier fundraiser has been dedicated to raising funds that provide and promote better mental health in our community since 1957.

We are returning with a new location and new format the first weekend in December at the San Jose Woman’s Club. Keeping with Valle Monte League tradition, the opportunity to win a beautiful, professionally designed Christmas tree accompanied with special gifts or a unique “experience” will still be a highlight of our fundraiser. Each event includes a gourmet meal enjoyed at your table for eight, features a live performance by the Cosmo Alleycats, an auctioneer segment and more!

Not only will Christmas Tree Elegance get you into the holiday spirit, your ticket purchase affirms our mission to assist three valued mental health agencies Family & Children Services, Centre For Living with Dying and Hearts & Minds Activity Center. Your participation in the event makes a difference in people’s lives.
